Nice image. Although the statue of Wadlow might be lifesize in height, I don't think his feet are lifesize. Sultan's feet look bigger to me!

is true I agree TTM, Wadlow had huge feet (the largest I think), the statue from other angles seem to exceed 9' but I think Robert is measured while wearing heeled shoes, in his final months. Although the statue is too thin in comparison with the structure of Wadlow body. Robert was incredibly long legs and long arms and his torso was small compared to the size of their limbs. But in principle it seems that the statue respects the 8 '11 "Wadlow. You can clearly see the 8' 1" (with shoes) of Sultan if the rule is well done. apparently the curvature of your spine you subtract 2 inches.

Thanks. So they added 2 inches for his scoliosis. If that still applies then his barefooted (presumably) standing height is about 8'1" since they list him at 8'3", a difference of two inches.

Which means Brahim has a standing height of about 7'11.5" in that photo, assuming Kosen isn't wearing especially thick heels. If he is, then Brahim might stand about 8'. And his projected height of 8'1" only adds about an inch or an inch and a half for his scoliosis. Seems to make sense. His posture is noticeably better than Kosen's posture.

I think this is as close to reality, knowing that Sultan is achieved lift to 8 '1 "with the same shoes next to Wadlow statue-ruler and Brahim image. Possibly Brahim is 7 '11" or little mor without his shoes and Kosen a little less than 8' 1" without his shoes on the image. Every time we have more clues to ascend Jun Cai to the list of 8 ', at least 2.45m in height projected.

Surely Mr. George Bell is less than 7 '7 "at this meeting with Sultan, although I think in his youth came to the 7' 8" standing up. And maybe Tuncel is less than 7 '1 ", assuming that in 2009 Sultan stood at t 8' or less than 8' 1" in real height.

17th Anniversary of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not

On Saturday afternoon the Senior Vice President Mr. Somporn Nark-sue-troeng of Royal Garden Plaza, hosted the 17th Anniversary of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. There were many amazing shows to enjoy at Ripley’s, and for this occasion, performances by the 7 Amazing Thais and the World’s Tallest Man “Sultan” from Turkey really wowed the crowds.

The 7 Amazing Thais were Miss Nat, who keeps getting taller and taller, the Werewolf Girl, the Girl with the World’s Longest Hair, the Scorpion Queen, the Centipedes King, the Penguin Man, the King of the King Cobras’ and World’s Tallest Woman, Miss Malee. Mr. Sultan from Turkey showed his 2.51 meter tall body for the first time in Thailand.

A fund raiser for Miss Mamiao from Pisanulok province was also conducted, as this young woman just discovered she has the same syndrome as Miss Natt, who is now 1.90 meter tall and still growing.

I'm sure George Bell is 7 '5 "to 7' 6" with shoes, and in his youth insurance was 7 '8 ", only lost altitude.
Tuncel Ummit not exceed 7 'in that photo, is 6' 10 "to 6 '11".

I turned the photo into a 3D -diorama in order to measure Sultan.
Please look at the attached pictures.

I placed the ruler and platform directly behind the model of Sultan in order to measure him.
After Compensating for the height of the platform on which the ruler is placed, the height of Sultan turns out to be approx 248,6 cm or 8'1 7/78" in this picture. This is of course based on the thought that the ruler in the picture is correct. Feel free to post your thoughts on this work.
Thank you and have a great day!
